I hope you have enjoyed your bank holiday weekend?
I've spent most of mine doing housework, trying to have a clear out, and re-organising my office/workroom - but I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped...
However, I can at least now see a table top which had been buried for several months!
I shall have to tackle some more next weekend now - as the rest of the week I shall be busy catching up with my orders!
On with the cards!
Please find your message for the week ahead below, and whatever your star sign - have a great week :)
by Sally Morningstar
Connect with the archetypes of the ancient Pagan deities, and use the beautifully illustrated cards to develop your latent intuitive skills and explore the world of natural magic through inner spiritual work."
Here are your messages and insights for this week. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...
High Note: Occult gifts are being activated.
Low Note: Shadows on the soul require attention.
Keywords: Occult knowledge, magic, mastery.
Meaning: Raven arrives at those times when the veils are thin between your worlds, giving you the ability to shape your reality through integration of spirit and matter. As you let go into the void and really trust the process, you will be led to understandings of your current situation, based upon knowledge of the greater picture.
Trust any visions at this time and know that the nature of light is to penetrate darkness, in order for integration to take place.
You are in the process of shedding light upon situations in your life and are being initiated into her mysteries. Keep secrets and hold your tongue.
High Note: Change is coming.
Low Note: Release, let go, prepare.
Vibration: Formative ethers
Keywords: Attraction, release, movement.
Meaning: Spiral indicates that this is the time to draw toward you what you need at the moment in order to progress your position in life. You may need to release something in order for new situations to be drawn in.
By letting go, one creates a space within that automatically calls to be filled. This vacuum can contain any kind of energy, so be aware how you fill it.
Treat life as a dance at the moment - a combination of action and non-action, growth and rest, and see it all as the cosmic wheel of your evolution. Try not to reject those things that you need (but may not want) at this time. You are attracting attention.
High Note: Seeds of creation are being sown.
Low Note: What you put in is what you get out. Challenge hidden fears.
Vibration: Sacral Chakra.
Keywords: The void, potential, wise intention.
Meaning: Cauldron symbolizes the potential you have at this time to create your own reality, your own direction and outcome. However, be aware that as creator you will need to be fully conscious of what you are trying to achieve, being realistic and un-manipulative, to avoid limiting yourself and your unfolding destiny. Remember, if you place love and compassion in your cauldron and stir it with wisdom, you are likely to create the same thing in your world, because one of the great laws of the universe states that, “As you give, so shall you receive.”
Pregnancy is likely, as is the birth of a new situation in your life. Remember that if you want something to manifest for you, start giving it out. For example, the road to abundance begins with giving unconditionally. Create a world that you are happy to live in, welcome the state of emptiness that comes before any major change or growth; fill it with intentions that enhance your situation - and so give birth to a life you love living.
High Note: A wish shall be granted.
Low Note: Illusions and fantasies are being uncovered.
Keywords: Enchantment, illusion, fantasy.
Meaning: Spell indicates that enchantment is in the air - that a magical time is coming into your life, especially if you have been calling for something.
Spell also advises you to look at self delusion. Like Rumpelstiltskin after his long sleep, you may well find that you “wake up” from a dream or illusion when this card appears.
See life as it presents itself, and remember that when you follow the ways of the wise, you will always be shown the truth. Expect it to be revealed.
High Note: Fun and celebration are indicated.
Low Note: Be honorable. Find what makes you truly happy.
Vibration: Base Chakra
Keywords: Life force, inhibitions, joy.
Meaning: If the Horned God appears, your desires may be out of balance. You may be feeling the need to seek more genuine joy and deeper connectedness in your life, by freeing emotions and inhibitions.
However, life is not always about “having a good time” - be responsible and committed too. The Horned God reminds us that we need to give thanks for what we receive, to celebrate our life.
If you are stressed or unwell, the Horned God indicates that you may need this time to “be natural,” to be yourself. If it seems that your life is not your own, take steps to integrate yourself with those who support and affirm who you would like to be. Let go.
High note: Love is your greatest ally.
Low note: Be a good friend, guard your tongue.
Keywords: Ally, support, friendships.
Meaning: When the Familiar appears, it indicates that friendships are highlighted, as are allies to your cause. Observe where contact with others is taking you, celebrating harmony and challenging conflict.
Call upon your familiar to watch situations for you and to warn you of anything requiring careful attention to detail. You may need help the and support of close friends: do not be afraid to ask for what you need.
High Note: Your inner light guides your way.
Low Note: Energy management is required.
Vibration: Throat Chakra.
Keywords: Illumination, sacrifice, inner radiance.
Meaning: Candle is a sign of holding yourself as an example to life. You may have felt worn down or overworked recently, in order to fulfil demands. However, you can be sure that if you are making sacrifices for the benefit of the greater good… your life will shine with radiance as a result of the sacrifices you make.
Magically speaking, you are being advised to focus upon the light that you carry and to develop ways of working that help not only yourself, but also those around you. The Candle card also point to utilizing candle magic in order to reach greater understanding. Trust in the source of your guidance, but do be aware that flames can burn as well as illuminate.
Candle can therefore reveal that you may be about to burn out. Perhaps things have been getting out of control. This definitely shows that lessons need to be learned about energy management and how to improve it. Grounding yourself regularly will assist your current situation, as will tempering the flame with rest and contemplation. Try to gently discover more about the way your energy works - what makes you tired and what enlivens you - don’t push yourself or your desires too hard.
High Note: Dreams can come true.
Low Note: You are not alone.
Vibration: Heaven on Earth.
Keywords: Transcendence, karmic purpose, faith.
Meaning: Our lady Shekinah, Queen of the Stars, shines her radiance upon you. As one of her children, you are travelling this universe, fulfilling the dreams of creation. What is your dream? What do you wish for? To find one’s soul purpose is the quest. How does your quest fit into the myths and legends of your land?
“Transcend all limitations” is the message of this card - to rise above earthly restrictions if one is feeling heavy, or to touch the earth if one is feeling confused and alone. Turn to Shekinah for illumination and guidance. Seek the company of those who are wise. Have faith to find yourself, enjoy your earthly life, and follow your dream.
High Note: Clear vision now creates your future.
Low Note: Follow your own counsel.
Vibration: Third Eye Chakra
Keywords: Insight, divination, vision.
Meaning: Crystal Ball shows that you have the ability to see in its real sense - to see beyond illusions and distractions, having a sense of many levels. Once we can detach from third-dimensional restrictions, we can travel to other realms to find what it is that we seek. Potentials and possibilities can be realized now, because your vision is clear enough to bring them into reality.
Clarity of vision can sometimes seem isolating. Time with water will show that each drop of water makes up a river, as each river makes up an ocean. Follow the course that is right for you and you will meet up with others whose river is flowing to the same ocean as yours.
High Note: Visionary skills guide your way
Low Note: Psychic awareness is required.
Vibration: Third Eye Chakra
Keywords: Psychism, clairvoyance, psychic protection Meaning: Black cat says, keep your psychic feelers open in order to maintain clarity in your psychic space. However, it is not so much a case of “beware” more to “be aware.” The energetic realm is as real s the physical one, and energies around you at this time can guide you to great clarity.
Patience may well be required. Tread with awareness, using your psychic skills. Black cat also says, watch those in your circle of acquaintances, as someone may not have your best interests at heart. Increase your psychic protection, withdraw your energy for a while, and do what cats do best - curl up and rest!
High Note: The powers of truth will prevail.
Low Note: Embrace the lessons that life must bring if you are to grow.
Keywords: Lessons, Karma, destiny.
Meaning: Nemesis visiting at this time is a sign that she has witnessed what has been happing around you. She is observing and noticing the thoughts, words and deeds of others, and stands as guardian in order to offer protection and acknowledgement of some form of injustice. Pray to her for illumination. Understand that life sometimes has to go pear-shaped in order for rightness to emerge.
You are in the process of helping someone or something to emerge into their own light, and the truth of your situation will shortly be revealed, both to you and anyone else involved. Don’t seek revenge or retribution. Keep your dignity at all times. Wait and watch as things unfold.
High note: Life is changing. Embrace your wisdom.
Low note: Challenge small self. There is no need to stand in the dark.
Vibration: Crown Chakra
Keywords: Wisdom, release, maturity
Meaning: The crone sees that you are being called to the wisdom place, to go within and release any attachments to the outside world at the moment, so that you can gather understanding of your current experiences and so make sense of your life. A maturity is called for that gives no place to familiar emotional patterns or thought processes, but rather uses each opportunity to see beyond the illusions of small self and so step into a far greater reality.
The Crone coming into your life now shows that you have just experienced (or will shortly experience) a change or release that requires some deep responses. You are being advised to let go and let life shape itself.
